The CIMARRÓN URUGUAYO is a medium sized dog of molossian type. It is strong, compact, with heavy bones, well muscled and agile. According to some, they are descended from dogs introduced by the Spanish and Portuguese conquerors of Uruguay.
The Uruguayan Cimarron lived in the country and bred among themselves. Natural selection had as a result that only the fitter, the stronger and more clever individuals survived. This is how the Cimarrón evolved to its present standard. The Cimarrón Uruguayo is used for guarding, hunting, and all dog sports in its native Uruguay.
Often the ears are cropped short when the dogs are very young. This is alleged to be in homage to the days when they were hunted (the ears were presented for the bounty.) Most fighting dog breeds have their ears severely cropped.
The Cimarron is balanced, intelligent and of great courage. As with all large and powerful breeds, the Cimarrón Uruguayo must be socialized at and early age if it is to live with a family.
Children should not be left unattended with Cimarron Dogs.
The Cimarrón Uruguayo is a generally healthy breed but can suffer from hip and elbow dysplasia. To help prevent the chance of hip or elbow dysplasia developing make sure your dog is on a healthy, well proportioned diet, and avoid excessive running and jumping while still a puppy as this can be hard on the developing joints.
Recommended environment is a house with a yard or garden. The Maroon Dog needs plenty of space and exercise. It is a natural guardian of animals and territory therefore it feels frustrated in small confined spaces.
